Nokia 808 PureView 41 Megapixel Camera Price and Release Date Revealed for UK

Nokia has now launched the Nokia 808 PureView for pre-order in the UK. The new 41 megapixel smartphone has been given a possible release date of April 23 although this isn’t set in stone just yet.

Price wise, the new device will be sold at around £465 when it launches which is of course, the SIM free price. When networks get hold of it, expect the price to be drastically lowered if you sign up for a 24 month contract.

The device is impressive to say the least. When we say impressive, we are talking about the camera here as it does have a big downside… it runs the Symbian operating system. Either way, nobody can ignore a smartphone that more than triples the megapixels of a previous generation model.

Technical specs show it has a 4 inch screen along with a single-core 1.3GHz processor. It has 512MB of RAM and 16GB of storage. Thankfully a microSD card slot is also included allowing another 32GB of capacity to be added.

Back to the camera… as it’s 41 megapixel it allows extremely large and detailed pictures to be captured. One of the main features is that it allows for 4x lossless digital zoom. The reason for this is that there’s so many megapixels on the sensor that it can easily zone in on a section of the picture at a lower megapixel equivalent and still produce a sharp image as there is no need to algorithmically change around and make up pixels to fill in the gaps.

This is one smartphone I am looking forwards to testing!
